CNN’s Factcheck Failure on Occupy Wall Street
Former CNBC reporter Erin Burnett’s CNN show OutFront debuted Monday night (10/3/11) with a failed attempt to factcheck the Occupy Wall Street protests.
The show kicked off with Burnett explaining that she
went to Wall Street today to see those protests for myself. I saw dancing, bongo drums, even a clown…. I asked several protesters what it was that they wanted. Now, they did not know…. They did know what they don’t want.
Burnett added that “it seems like people want a messiah leader, just like they did when they anointed Barack Obama.”
